NFTs have become the next big thing online. The payoff has been huge for artists, musicians and influencers, with investors paying top dollar to own NFT versions of digital images. For example, Jack Dorsey’s tweet is bidding for US$2.5 million and a Nyan Cat GIF that went for US$600,000.
If you are an artist looking to monetize your work, you might be considering turning your piece into an NFT. So how do you create one? YouTube channel 3D Gladiator has explained this concept in a new video.
NFTs serve as unique signatures and transform digital works of art and other collectibles into verifiable assets that are easy to trade. You will need a digital wallet, a small purchase of Ethereum, and a connection to an NFT marketplace where you’ll be able to upload and turn the content into an NFT or crypto art.
In the video, the YouTuber explains listing an NFT on Rarible, the first community-owned NFT marketplace.
First, you have to connect your Ethereum-based wallet to the marketplace. Then, upload your artwork, add a name and a description.
You can also include special traits and attributes to increase the scarcity and uniqueness of your NFT. Once it is done, the artwork will appear in your collection.
There are a variety of places on which to buy and sell NFTs, including Nifty Gateway, MakersPlace, SuperRare, OpenSea, Decentraland and Rarible, to name a few.
Please note, though, that this video is for those curious about the NFT market, and is not a recommendation to join the hype.
